Many thanks to everyone who joined us for the 2016 Wonderland Tea Party!


This event engages both the young and the young at heart with its goal to provide upkeep for special places like the Variety Wonderland Playground on the grounds of the Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor and Education Center.

The Wonderland Tea Party includes crafts, entertainment, kid-approved snacks (including a Chocolate Fountain!), a silent auction, plenty of play time, and more. 

This year's event theme will be a birthday party for Forest Park Forever, as the organization celebrates its 30th anniversary!

“The Wonderland Tea Party was a great success. Judging from the expressions on the faces of our young attendees —whether at the face painting booth, the outdoor chess board or the chocolate fountain — it was clear this year’s Wonderland Tea Party was enjoyed by all. Forest Park Forever would like to thank our Women’s Committee, the event’s Co-Chairs, sponsors and the families of all attendees. They all play a critical role in instilling the value of stewardship so Forest Park can sustain our children and their children for generations to come.” – Lesley Hoffarth, President & Executive Director Forest Park Forever
